Live at Supersonic Festival
The Custard Factory, Birmingham, England
July 12, 2003
This video originally surfaced as two edited video clips on Youtube of "The First Five Minutes After Death" (2.5 mins) and "Drip Drop" (7 mins), uploaded on January 1, 2007 and July 16, 2007 respectively by user Doppeldecker23. On October 17, 2018, Michael Wild von Hohenborn, the original taper, found four separate video files of his original video in higher quality and uploaded them to Youtube, later sending the raw files to LCA on October 23. The first video file is missing a file index but otherwise functions.
The four video files are great quality, owing partially to the fact they seem to be relatively uncompressed, explaining the huge file sizes. For your storage convenience, I rendered the four video files together into one .avi file with 320 MP3 kbps audio and included it here.
To clarify all sources of this show:
AUD #1 - Complete
AUD #2 / MIX (?) - Seems to be a mix of different sources; cuts between song transitions, some repeated audio in places like the intro to “Radio Weston,” sometimes the audience noise will transition to what sounds like a completely different source! “Drip Drop” cuts in.
SBD - High generation and/or extremely compressed.
AMT #1 - A frame repeats between the first and second video files. "Triple Sons" cuts in and "The First Five Minutes After Death" cuts in, has an internal cut, and cuts out.
AMT #2 - During "Drip Drop" on AMT #1, at one point, you see the silhouette of a tripod against the video projection for a few seconds, indicating another possible video source.
AUD #2 / MIX was used wherever possible.
1. Drip Drop 0:49
2. Blue Rats 13:18
3. Triple Sons and the One You Bury (Instrumental) (Cuts In) 24:50
4. Radio Weston 35:20
5. The First Five Minutes After Death (Cuts) 45:57
(time-stamps for "AMT #1 (Full)")
Peter “Sleazy” Christopherson.
Tom Edwards – marimba.
Instrumental phase; John apparently bailed due to sickness from increasing addiction to alcohol and other drugs.
Final performances of all songs except “Radio Weston,” which would be played five more times under the name “Wraiths and Strays”
Merchandise sold at this gig: ANS (Single-CD Edition) (2003), Live Boxes (2003) for those who had previously ordered them.
Before the gig, Thighpaulsandra says, “Good evening. Thank you for coming. We are Coil. We’re a long way from the sea, but we’re surrounded by water. Thank you.”
After “The First Five Minutes After Death,” Thighpaulsandra says, “Thank you very much. We’ve been Coil.”
